4/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had this on tap at a beer tasting of local Hawaiian beers in Honolulu.

Appearance: Light colored with a a nice frothy head.

Smell: Sweet with a bubblegum hint.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Just like the nose hinted at ...bubble gum flavor comes in, along with a mild dry-hopped taste that also creates that dry aftertaste.

Drinkability: Another nice one from the crew at Maui Brewing Co.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Poured with a moderate-sized, white foamy head that dissipated to a 1/4-finger size. Body is a light copper color, and slightly hazy.

S: Faint citrusy and spicy hop aroma, with an equal amount of caramel-sweetness balancing... a little lacking in the hop department.

T: Caramel flavor comes through; not too high, but definitely present. The hop flavor is slightly citrusy, but fairly light, as is the bitterness in the finish. The brewery lists the IBUs as 50 for this beer, but I would have guess lower from the taste.

M: Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation.

D: An easy-drinking brew, but light in the hop department in terms of aroma, flavor, and bitterness for an APA.
